The Hispanic Society of America in New York City has lent the Cincinnati Art Museum a huge part of its world-renowned collection. When shown at the Museo del Prado in Madrid, it received an amazing reception. The New York Times featured this presentation: Spanish Treasures Overlooked in New York Find Love in Madrid. The exhibition features Goya, El Greco, Velázquez and more!
The Cincinnati Art Museum is the first and only venue to showcase this exhibition in the Midwest. In addition to the Prado, it was shown at the Albuquerque Museum and after its Cincinnati stop will make its way to the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston in March 2020 before returning to New York. This presentation includes text in both English and Spanish.
